GOP Wins Special Election, Revenue Bill Stalls & Protest Bill Signed

May 12, 2017

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about a special election for a House seat which stays in Republican hands after the GOP gets a win in Seminole and Pottawatomie Counties, a $430M revenue bill stalls after a fight over expansion of tribal gaming and Governor Fallin reiterates her threat to veto a bill which just contains more cuts to already suffering state agencies.

The trio also discusses the Governor signing a bill strengthening penalties on protestors similar to Standing Rock in North Dakota and State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones officially declares his candidacy for Governor in 2018 to replace Fallin.
